Probate and Estate Administration

Estate Administration (oftentimes involving the Court administered Probate process) and Trust Administration is a necessary but unpleasant and emotional task that is left to us after the death of a loved one. Court applications and petitions, paperwork, contacting the right people and companies, managing assets and funds, keeping family members informed, and managing their expectations, all while trying to follow the legal requirements and laws can be an overwhelming task. Choosing the right attorney that you have confidence in and who you can work closely with is vitally important to accomplishing these tasks.
